Properly displayed house numbers allow emergency personnel to respond more quickly to an emergency. Howard City Fire, Police and Rescue are encouraging all residents to properly display their address. To assist residents, the Village has begun processing orders for green reflective signs that can be displayed near the street. The sign may be displayed either on a mail box or post in the front yard. If your mail box is not located on your property, it is suggested that the reflective sign be installed on a post in the front yard.
